Tracee Ellis Ross captioned this Instagram post, “BOTTEGA VENETA // DANIEL LEE. Thank you for making this fantastical feathery ‘fit for me!!! I HEART FASHION! I REALLY HEART FASHION GIFTS!!
thank u @karlawelchstylist for always making my fashion dreams come true.”
Tracee and Karla are a fashionable dream team that’s for sure. And the union works because Tracee trusts Karla who not only has fantastic eyes, and is willing to take risks that some of her peers wouldn’t, but Karla also trusts that Tracee has the confidence, and prowess to make those risks work.
Take this Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2021 feathered and embellished confection for example.
In what universe would you see this on a Margot Robbie, a Zoe Saldana or a Priyanka Chopra?
Not this universe.
That’s because this look is reserved for a Tracee Ellis Ross.
I’m sure there will be some in the comments who will say that she’s “trying too hard”, or she’s paying homage to the Cookie Monster, but I think she nailed it.
And if she is trying too hard, it’s working in her favour in this moment.
